It will now be providing 7-day tours of northern Vietnam, which will include Sapa, Hanoi and a new 7 wonders of the world tour, Halong Bay. The tour will offer holidaymakers a complete experience of the area’s nature, authenticity, heritage and culture. The company specialises in designing tailor-made tours and giving holidaymakers unique travel experiences.
The tour will start off with a day in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam and its second biggest city. Then holidaymakers will get to travel to Lao Cai, a city on the nation’s border with China, on a night train. From there, they will make a short trip to Sapa and then return to Hanoi after some exploring. Upon their return to the capital, they will visit Halong Bay, which is a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site and newly voted as the New Seven Wonders of Nature.
Ha Long Bay is a world heritage site and one of Vietnam’s popular tourist destinations. It is located about three hours east of Hanoi in the Gulf of Tonkin near the northern Chinese border. The emerald water is dotted with 1,700 dramatic limestone formations that form tiny islands.
Some 500 boats are licensed to take tourists on cruises. Many opt for day tours, while others prefer to sleep in overnight cabins on wooden junks, ranging from budget to luxury accommodation.
The luxury tour isn’t lacking in the ‘luxury’ department by any means. It comes complete with private concierge services – transportation, a private cabin on a boat cruise, door-to-door pick up and drop off services, deluxe train services, an everyday tour guide that speaks either French or English, and meals. This is all priced at just US$1190 per person for first class and US$1,615 per person for a private party of two people for deluxe travel.
Luxury Travel (www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) sales and marketing manager David Nguyen says that northern Vietnam is always an appealing destination for travellers visiting the nation – Hanoi, Sapa and Halong Bay are their favourites. Holidaymakers will enjoy ending their tour ‘with a relaxing traditional junk trip’ and participating in several types of activities – sitting on the sundeck with a glass of wine, cave climbing or kayaking in this new seven wonders of the World.
Luxury Travel chief executive Pham Ha says that Vietnam is an Asian charm. The northern area has always appealed to travellers, he also noted. The rich history, amazing diversity of people and landscapes, and unique cultures welcome holidaymakers seeking a truly authentic experience. Vietnam is quickly becoming an exciting hotspot for the high-end tourist, with new luxury hotels, world class golf courses, luxury train journeys, upscale private tours and exclusive cruises.
